    Text:  Real Analysis  by N.L. Carothers.

    Course description: The goal of this course is to develop thorough understanding and
    technical mastery of foundations of classical analysis in the framework of metric spaces.
    The following topics will be covered:  Metric spaces (open and closed sets, connectedness,
    convergence, Cauchy sequences and completeness);  Maps between metric spaces (continuous
    maps and homeomorphisms, stronger continuity properties, contraction mapping principle);
    Compact metric spaces (continuity and compactness, total boundedness, coverings);
    Baire Category Theorem;  Function spaces (spaces of continuous maps, equicontinuity,
    Arzela-Ascoli Theorem, Stone-Weierstrass Theorem).
    Prerequisites: Math 311M and Math 312H.
